First Post - a Card and a DT Call

This is the first post of my new challenge blog focused on scene projects using images from a variety of sources such as Stampscapes. I especially like Stampscapes and am learning how to use them.  I have seen many posts from designers who comment that they have these stamps and don't necessarily know what to do with them.  Through this blog we can all learn together and have a place to showcase our work and win great prizes.

The challenges will start Sunday, January 1, 2012.  This is where the DT Call comes in.....

I am looking for all levels of experience with both creating scene projects and blogging.  Previous DT experience is not required, however, a blog is required. You will be asked to post 2 projects per month; one for the 1st Sunday when we introduce the challenge and one for another week during the month.  Both projects will follow the challenge theme.  You may create any type of paper-based project (card, box, tag, altered art, etc) as long as it is a finished project (no ATCs).

I'll act as the Sr. DT Coordinator, but I will need mates who are willing to help find sponsors, suggest challenge ideas, create sketches, post tutorials (either written or video), and learn along the way. I would like this blog to be a source for ideas and techniques as well as the monthly challenges. We will all comment on assigned entries as well.

The first term will be for 4 months from January 15th to May, 2012. That's only 8 projects!

If you are interested in joining this new DT Team please leave a comment below, before January 10th with your name and blog address. I will contact you through the email address on your blog.

Here is my first project, I followed the Mojo Monday sketch for my inspiration.
